The Gary Ryder Road Show, 610 KILT Houston | 1981

Gary Ryder Road Show KILTGary Ryder checked in with some audio of himself on COUNTRY 610 KILT. Much like KHJ in Los Angeles, KILT had been a full blown Top 40 station but saw ratings slide with the increase in FM radio listening. In this case, KILT flipped to Country shortly after the FM side dropped its AOR format for Country, and 610 opted to simulcast the FM for much of the day, but as you can tell here, not ALL of the day, as this is a live AM-Only show for truckers.

Could this have been a precursor to “The Road Gang” show, long broadcast from WWL New Orleans? We’ll have to ask our Contributor!

  2. Was this show a precursor to WWL’s “Road Gang”? No, more like the other way around. Charlie Douglas created the “Road Gang” show on WWL out of New Orleans in 1971. Here’s more of the history of the show from Charlie’s obit in 2011: http://www.wwltv.com/news/WWL-Road-Gang-radio-show-creator-Charlie-Douglas-dies-at-78-134680543.html
